Nancy Carolyn Dover (Debar)

September 2, 1938 - January 3, 2019

Nancy Carolyn Dover (Debar) passed peacefully on January 3, 2019, in Chaska, MN, at the age of 80.

Nancy was born on September 2, 1938, in Wenatchee, WA, to James and Erma Debar. She was raised in Manson, WA, and later attended Central Washington University. On December 7, 1958, Nancy married Randall Wesley Dover, by whose side she remained for 40 years, until his passing. Her family was the light of her life.

At an early age Nancy entered into a relationship with Jesus, helping her to bloom into a woman flowing of love for family, friends, and anyone blessed enough to know her. Nancy never met a stranger; in that the love she showed others made them feel comfortable and important. Blessed with the gift of selflessness and generosity, Nancy would personally reach out to new attendees at her church. She befriended widows, held bible studies in her home, and ensured those she knew never went without. We are all better people for having known her.

Nancy is survived by her children; Marcia, Kevin, Cindy, Steven, a sister, Lavina Phillips, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Coffee and Graveside service will be Friday, January 11, 2019, at 11:45 a.m. at Mount Hope Cemetery, College Place, WA 99324. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Nancy’s life.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Cure Alzheimer's ( in Nancy’s honor. Friends and family may share memories and sign the online guestbook at

The most profound thing in a person is His will… not sin! God not only expects me to do His will, but He is in me to do it.” – Nancy Dover
